In the context of injury claims, the statement of truth is a piece of text that is added to the end of a statement, detailing the particulars of a personal injury claim or application notice, defence, witness statements and other relevant, legal documents.
The statement of truth
This statement is essentially a declaration that the person signing the document believes that the facts stated therein are true. It should be written in the first person, refer to the content of the statement, bear the name and date of the document, and confirm the truth of the document.
It must then be dated and signed by the person confirming the truth of the stated facts.
The thought of having to wade through piles of documents; trying to understand injury claim jargon; making statements of truth and more is doubtlessly a daunting one. It may even put someone injured by slipping, tripping or falling, for instance, off claiming for compensation altogether. There is, however, no need to worry.
You are not alone
Claims for injuries by slips, trips and falls, or any other type of accidental injury, for that matter, invariably make it necessary for the claimant to enlist the help of a solicitor.
A well trained, experienced solicitor will explain everything you need to know and/or do not understand, assist you in gathering all necessary evidence, prepare documents and more to guide you safely to a successful conclusion of your trip, slip or fall injury claim.
